The backends are supposed to define a function which maps a parsed
array type (an ARRAY-CTYPE) to a keyword that semi-abstractly names
that specialized array type.  The PPC32 version
(PPC32::PPC32-ARRAY-TYPE-NAME-FROM-CTYPE) sometimes returns
PPC32::SUBTAG-SIMPLE-VECTOR (178) instead of the keyword :SIMPLE-VECTOR.
That's bad enough, but PPC64::PPC64-ARRAY-TYPE-FROM-CTYPE also returns
PPC32::SUBTAG-SIMPLE-VECTOR (178).  As, um, we've seen.
